If this is true, that sucks for Sony.

It was originally supposed to come out in 2006?

I thought it was 2007 all along. I think Gamespot posted a rumor about the overheating thing, too.

Very bad news for Sony if true.

Their promised sping 06 release date seems really unreasonable but late 2007 is way too late. If that is true, they are in big trouble. I was guessing they would release fall 06 at latest.

It'll probably be the holiday season 2006.... after spring, but before 2007.

I think it will be holiday season 2006 in America as well. HOPEFULLY we don't see a late 2006 release in Japan and an early 2007 release in America. That would really hurt sales.

Does anyone honestly think it will meet a 2006 spring release? There's no playable demoes, just a bunch of FMV right now, and Sony's head running telling you it will deliver 1 billion FPS per game. Per polygon, even!

Considering it sounds like they have to go back to the drawing board, Late 2007 seems reasonable.

I always thought that it would come out mid 2007. No surprise there. I would hate for Sony to become another Sega.

Big problem for Sony, by that time 360s will be cheaper and when the PS3 launches they will lower the price even more. And even if the PS3 is priced at $400 Microsoft will be able to sell 360s for 275-300 by that time.

yea, the 360 from what i heard was never scheduled for a US release in the spring of 06. If anything, Japan was going to get the ps3 in the spring of 06. I would assume that the the US will get the system late holiday season of 06 or no later than March of 07

I really have a hard time seeing Sony as Sega. Sega in my book had a much better image, When Sega died we lost so many Sega games. But if Sony were to die what would be really lose? So much of Sony's library is 3rd party, all those games could in a heart beat find a new home on a different system. If Sony died we would lose what? Jak, Ratchet, Sly, Twisted Metal, Everquest, 989 Sports, Gran Turismo. In my book nothing I would be really heart broken to see gone. Not like Sega, SCEA just doesn't have the library for me to see them like Sega. Jak, Ratchet, Sly all got boring by the 3rd installment. Everquest is long past its life. 989 Sports... who really would be sad to see those gone? and Gran Turismo, just another raceing game.

I really don't see Sony leaving that much of a impact like Sega did.
Sony's biggest hits are not even made by them.

Considering that Sony's gaming division was the only profitable part of the company last quarter, their gonna be in gaming for a while.

I can't say that I care, or that I thought hardware wouldn't be a problem for Sony (:roll: yeah, right). But this sure does suck for Kenny and company, if true.

I truly think the PS2 has enough noteworthy games in development to keep Sony loyalists waiting through 2006.

They better have a fuckton of top notch titles ready at launch to make up for it, however. We don't need another "Bouncer" this time.

We are also seeing that the PS2 is capable of amazing graphics with God of War and Shadow of the Collosus. Even though people say that these games are the extent of the PS2 capability I know that there is still some untapper potential. And in anycase its not the graphics its the gameplay. Just look at the Gamecube, it has the worst visual prowess of any current system but its still has large loyal following.

By knowing the PS2 by heart devlopers will be able to create games faster and better. I doubt any company will stop making games for the PS2. This situation can work as a positive one for Sony. More games released over time will equal more profits from the PS2.

I was going to say, isn't the PS2 the technically inferior out of the three?

Maybe I'm wrong but thats what I thought and what I have heard. Are there titles on the GC that look as good as Shadow of the Colossus, which I think is the best the PS2 has.

The source is bs and this is a bs story.


On that note I have had that thought since E3. Now that BLU-Ray is way behind schedule this seems more and more true. PS3 had a no show at the TGS (playable) is also bothering. 6 months away and still no BLU-Ray release date in sight let alone PS3. Sony is having trouble and has been having trouble with duel layer discs. BLU-Ray needs to be finalized before Sony can even think about bringing out the PS3.

Twilight Princess will spank Shadow of the Colossus in terms of graphics, and I LOVED Shadow. The PS2 is definitely the technically inferior system of the three consoles...developers have just had the most time to draw out its power, as it's been out a year longer.

I call BS on this story, by the way.

I call total bs on this story. It's hearsay from a gamestop employee from a DM that could be totally fabricated for all we know.

I don't know about you guys, but even if the system has a serious overheating problem, I don't see how that would put Sony back to square one. It seems to me like they just need to work out to cooling system, not the architecture and rest of the hardware.

Geez, people will believe anything.
To feel. 'Cause you've never done it, you can never know it. But it's as vital as breath. And without it, without love, without anger, without sorrow, breath is just a clock... ticking.

They already have second generation Blu-Ray drives in Japan.

The only thing they have that I know of is single layer Blu-ray Disc recorders (for recording HD tv.) They cost around $3,000. The only thing it can be used for is recording live tv then watching the discs that you recorded. They can only record about 2 hrs of 1080i. Not a very solid 2nd generation.
